Why are humans so prone to various types of bias in thought, speech, and behavior? Why do people have such trouble recognizing their own tendencies to favor—sometimes unfairly—certain ideas, individuals, or groups? What are the implications of expressing, whether inadvertently or intentionally, our biases? What are the benefits and costs of a cultural and legal commitment to “free speech”?
